is a State and a community responsibility.

include an accurate and complete determination of the
cause of the assault or death and the development and
implementation of measures to prevent future assaults or
deaths from similar causes. The response may include
court action, including prosecution of persons who may be
responsible for the assault or death and proceedings to
protect other residents of the facility where the
resident lived, and disciplinary action against persons
who failed to meet their professional responsibilities to

residents and expertise that can promote resident safety

assaults and unnecessary resident deaths, planning and
providing services to surviving residents, and preventing
future assaults and unnecessary deaths can be achieved.
(5) A greater understanding of the incidence and
causes of sexual assaults against nursing home residents
and unnecessary nursing home resident deaths is necessary
if the State is to prevent future assaults and

sexual assaults against nursing home residents and
unnecessary nursing home resident deaths can assist the
State and counties in (i) investigating resident sexual
assaults and deaths, (ii) developing a greater
understanding of the incidence and causes of resident
sexual assault and deaths and the methods for preventing
those assaults and deaths, and (iii) identifying gaps in
services to nursing home residents.
